Archaeological excavations at Paphos’ ancient theatre continued in 2012, unearthing a number of significant finds, including fragments of marble sculptural adornments from the theatre’s stage building and the nymphaeum.

This was the 15th season of archaeological investigations of the precinct of the ancient Hellenistic-Roman theatre of Nea Paphos.

The excavations were conducted by the University of Sydney under the direction of Dr Craig Barker and Dr Smadar Gabrielli. The Australian archaeological excavations in Paphos are supported by the Nicholson Museum and by the Australian Archaeological Institute at Athens.
